DIY Mother's Day GIFT IDEA - Homemade - Fingerprint Fun! Quick, easy, inexpensive and fun CRAFT for the KIDS!

This was hands down fingers down one of my boys favorite projects/gifts to make. My favorite because it's personalized and SUPER inexpensive to create. 


They decorated a birdhouse but just paper for a homemade card, flower pot, coffee mug, etc. 

Perfect for Mother's Day, Birthdays, Teacher Appreciation, Christmas or just a fun surprise!


What you need:
fingers
ink pad (or paint)
permanent (fine tip) marker
spray sealer (especially if it's going outdoors)
something to fingerprint on :)

TIP!!!!!
Busy fingers having fun creating sometimes forget to wipe or wash fingers when changing colors. Keep wet wipes handy, this will save your ink pad.



Poor ink pad :/ It's actually my reminder to remind the boys to remember before switching colors. :)


FROG- two thumb prints sideways
BEE- one index fingerprint
BUG- two tips of index or middle fingerprints
FLOWER- six index fingerprints and one tip of index or middle finger


SPIDER- one index fingerprint sideways




LADYBUG- one index fingerprint


I usually buy whatever sealer is on sale but I like how quick this one dried. 



Fingerprint projects can be on anything! 


The pot was a teacher appreciation gift and all the fingerprints were done by the class. She LOVED it!


Now go be creative!!
Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thank you, Carla! It's called Budmo Jiggler. I've downloaded it twice from free font websites. Don't remember which ones but it's a popular font.

    2. Many thanks for the exact font name. No others I could find were quite as good as this one (and your budmo jiggler is very available upon a quick free font search). Cheers!
